events in respect life week and march for life. if it doesn't do anything else the rest of the year, you'll have a successful group. it's really successful. the march for life is successful. people also come because it is a fun social escape. i really think prolife organizations on campus should focus on the prolife issues. there are other important issues relating to life, i don't think those are as pertinent to young people.
